4 round mock draft

I have spent a little over 4 hours in a row putting this together. Enjoy.

Round 1

Carolina (2-14)

Team Needs: QB, 2DT, WR1, RG, RDE, TE, CB

Nick Fairley | DE/DT | Auburn

Fairley is an absolute beast and I think he is a lock for the number 1 pick.

 

Denver (4-12)

Team Needs: DT, CB, SS, RT, TE, DE, RB

Patrick Peterson | CB | LSU

Peterson is the best CB prospect since Darell Revis and I think he will be a stud. Even if Champ Bailey is resigned CB is still a need. If Fairley is not available I think Peterson is the pick.

 

Buffalo (4-12)

Team Needs: QB, LT, DE, Rush LB, RT, WR, TE, ILB, CB3

Da’Quan Bowers | DE | Clemson

This is the pick that makes the most sense for the Bills. No QB or LT is worth the pick. Then it comes down to Von Miller or Bowers and I think Bowers is better.

 

Cincinnati (4-12)

Team Needs: DE, RB, WR, ILB, QB, LG, SS, K, KR

Marcel Dareus | DE/ DT | Alabama

The Bengals would love if Fairley fell here but there is no chance. However, Dareus is very good and would fit right in on the Bengals squad.

 

Arizona (5-11)

Team Needs: QB, LT, 2 Rush LB, LG, RT, CB, FS

Von Miller | OLB | Texas A&M

I don’t think the Cardinals will reach for a QB or LT here so then they will go after the best pass rusher in the draft. Von Miller is that.

 

Cleveland (5-11)

Team Needs: WR, RT, DE, DT, weakside LB, CB, RG, SS, K

A.J. Green | WR | Georgia

The Browns get there QB a play maker. Green is the best WR prospect since Calvin Johnson and will be an instant star in the NFL.

 

San Francisco (6-10)

Team Needs: QB, DE, Rush LB, CB, FS, WR, OT

Cameron Jordan | DE | California

This is the toughest pick in my mock. They could reach for a QB here or for a rush LB. However, I think Jordan provides the best value at a need for the Niners. Gabbert or Quinn are the two people who could go here.

 

Tennessee (6-10)

Team Needs: QB, LG, ILB, C, DE, Weak LB, SS, DT

Blaine Gabbert | QB | Missouri

Gabbert is not a great QB prospect but he is the best one in this draft class. The Titans are in desperate need of a QB and Gabbert will start over Collins on Day 1.

 

Dallas (6-10)

Team Needs: CB, RT, FS, RE, LG, SS, DL, WR

Prince Amukamara | CB | Nebraksa

Nate Solder could be the pick but CB is a bigger need and Amukamara is a great CB. He is my     BPA at this point.

 

Washington (6-10)

Team Needs: QB, WR, RT, Rush LB, ILB, NT, CB, RE, FS, RG, C, FB, K, P

Robert Quinn | OLB | UNC

This is the second toughest pick in my mock. I think the McNabb QB situation gets worked out so that leaves WR, RT, and Rush LB as the 3 biggest needs. No WR’s or RT’s worth the pick so that leaves us with Robert Quinn who is a great pass rusher.

 

Houston (6-10)

Team Needs: NT, 2 Rush LB, FS, SS, CB, WR, P, DL

Aldon Smith | OLB | Missouri

The Texans need to get the pieces for their new 3-4 defense in the draft this year. Smith is a great pass rusher who will need to work on pass coverage.

 

Minnesota (6-10)

Team Needs: QB, 2 OLB, 2S, CB, RG, WR, LE, K, C, DT, TE

Cam Newton | QB | Auburn

I don’t like Newton that much as prospect but he is the 2nd best QB on my board and I think the Vikings will reach for him because they are so desperate. Akeem Ayers could be the pick.

 

Detroit (6-10)

Team Needs: 2OLB, CB, LT, C, SS, RB

Akeem Ayers | OLB | UCLA

Ayers is the best 4-3 OLB in the draft and the Lions are in desperate need.

 

St. Louis (7-9)             

Team Needs: WR, RG, DT, Weak LB, SS, TE, RB, CB, DE

Julio Jones | WR | Alabama

The second best playmaker in the draft, Jones will give Bradford a true #1 WR.

 

Miami (7-9)

Team Needs: QB, RB, FS, TE, LG, WR, CB3, Rush LB, OL

Mark Ingram | RB | Alabama

The Dolphins need a QB but none are worth the pick and they said they will give Henne one more year. Look for them to take Ingram here and add a QB in the mid rounds.

 

Jacksonville (8-8)

Team Needs: DE, 2S, CB, WR, Weak LB, QB, OL

J.J. Watt | DE | Wisconsin

Watt is an extremely versatile DE that can do a little bit of everything. The Jags need to upgrade their pass rush and he would do that.

 

New England - from Oakland (8-8)

Team Needs: G, OT, Rush LB, DE, WR, RB

Nate Solder | OT | Colorado

The Patriots get the advantage of 8 picks in the 1st four rounds. They could fill every need they have. Solder needs some refining but he is the best LT prospect in this class.

 

San Diego (9-7)

Team Needs: Rush LB, DE, RT, ILB, WR, FS, CB3, ST

Ryan Kerrigan | OLB/DE | Purdue

I think of Kerrigan as an OLB. He is very good at getting to the passer but will need to make the transition from DE to OLB.

 

New York Giants (10-6)

Team Needs: LT, RB, C, Strong LB, LG, WR, FS, P

Derek Sherrod | OT | Mississippi State

Sherrod is the 2nd best OT in the class and is great value at this spot.

 

Tampa Bay (10-6)

Team Needs: 2DE, ILB, RT, LG, Strong LB, RB, C, CB

Adrian Clayborn | DE | Iowa

Clayborn had a down year but I still think he will be good in the NFL. The Bucs are getting great value here.

 

Kansas City* (10-6)

Team Needs: Rush LB, WR, NT, QB, LT, RT, C, RB, ILB

Justin Houston | OLB | Georgia

The Chiefs need to find another WR but none are worth the pick. Houston is an elite pass rusher.

 

Indianapolis* (10-6)

Team Needs: LT, RT, DT, RG, WR, SS, RB, QB, P

Anthony Costanzo | OT | Boston College

Costanzo fits the Colts blocking scheme and could start right away.

 

Philadelphia* (10-6)

Team Needs: RT, RG, 2CB, 2OLB, SS, DE

Gabe Carimi | OT/OG | Wisconsin

Carimi is your typical Eagles OL. Huge and strong.

 

New Orleans* (11-5)

Team Needs: DT, ILB, DE, RT, RB, strong LB, SS

Corey Liuget | DT/DE | Illinois

Liuget is a great prospect who is rising on draft boards. If he is still here, the Saints should snatch him as he is my BPA at this point and fills there biggest need.

 

Seattle* (7-9)

Team Needs: CB, SS, RT, LE, WR1, RG, QB, K

Brandon Harris | CB | Miami

Harris is my ideal pick for the Steelers but I don’t think he makes it past the Seahawks. They need another CB and Harris is a starter in the NFL.

 

Baltimore* (12-4)

Team Needs: WR, DE, CB, ILB, RT, RG         

Titus Young | WR | Boise State

The Ravens need to add a play making WR. Young was one of my favorite players to watch this year and he is a great playmaker. It pains me to give the Ravens such a good player but I have to be unbiased in these mocks.

 

Atlanta* (13-3)

Team Needs: 2WR, LT, 2G, SS, strong LB, CB3, TE, DE

Torrey Smith | WR | Maryland

Smith is another fantastic weapon for Matt Ryan. Him and Roddy White will be devastating to opposing D’s.

 

New England* (14-2)

Team Needs: G, Rush LB, DE, WR, RB

Cameron Heyward | DE | Ohio State

A steal at the end of round 1. Heyward is the 3-4 DE the Pats are looking for and could start right away.

 

Chicago* (11-5)

Team Needs: LT, LG, DT, C, WR1, Strong LB, RB, DE, P

Tyron Smith | OT | USC

Not quite the LT the Bears want but if they train him right and he gains 20 pounds he will be a very good LT. He has great footwork and is very smart.

 

New York Jets* (11-5)

Team Needs: rush LB, DE, CB, ILB, WR, K

Muhammed Wilkerson | DE | Temple

The Jets need to work on there front 7, more specifically there DE and OLB. Wilkerson is a great DE and if Ellis is gone he will replace him. If not he will replace De Vito.

 

Pittsburgh* (12-4)

Team Needs: RG, CB, OT, NT, DE, FS, P

Mike Pouncey | RG | Florida

Pouncey and Pouncey playing next to each other for the next 12 years. Me likey. I debated giving them Phil Taylor but Pouncey is not a reach here and fills a more immediate need.

 

Green Bay* (10-6)

Team Needs: Rush LB, LG, DE, RB, OT, WR, K

Benjamin Ijalana | OG/OT | Villanova

The Packers don’t have any immediate need but Ijalana could start at LG and maybe transition to RT at some point.

Kyle Rudolph in the 4th round? I don’t see any team that has a need for a TE that is bigger than another need in any round where no value is present. I think Rudolph falls because when other teams are picking there are more important needs that still have good value.
